ANOTHER AMBITION was strongly fancied in many quarters to score over fences at Galway last week but unshipped Ruby Walsh early in proceedings. He's on a 19lb lower mark over hurdles and compensation awaits here. Mountain Lough has returned from a break in good heart scoring at Wexford in June and almost defying a 7lb rise at Ballinrobe. He's up another 2lb but should still get competitive along with Rising Altitude, who showed real battling qualities to score at Killarney. The once useful Eagle's Pass hasn't shown much for a long time but has dropped in the ratings accordingly and has rarely run in such a lowly grade.
